YEKATERINBURG, August 12. /TASS/ A military Mi-8 helicopter, involved in works following anthrax outbreak in Yamal-Nenets District, made an emergency landing in Yamal, no victims reported, a source at local emergency services told TASS on Friday.
"A helicopter used in overcoming consequences from the anthrax outbreak has made an emergency landing," the source said. "Nobody is injured."
Press service of the Central Military District promised to comment on the incident later on.
Authorities imposed quarantine measures in Yamal on July 25 because of the anthrax outbreak that has so far killed a total of 2,300 reindeer. According to the local administration, the cause of the outbreak was the extreme warm weather spell affecting Russia’s Far North. Anthrax was last recorded in Yamal 75 years ago, back in 1941.
